The Legend Of Zelda Majora’s Mask is an action-adventure video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64. It was released in Japan on April 27, 2000, in North America on October 26, 2000, and in Europe on November 17, 2000. Approximately 314,000 copies of the game were sold during its first week in Japan, and three million copies were sold worldwide.
Majora’s Mask is the sixth main installment in The Legend of Zelda series and the second using 3D graphics, the first being the game’s predecessor, The Legend Of Zelda Ocarina Of Time. Widely regarded as a darker entry in the Zelda franchise by critics and fans alike, Majora’s Mask is set in Termina, an alternate version of the usual series setting of Hyrule, where the Skull Kid has stolen Majora’s Mask, a powerful ancient artifact.
Under its influence, the Skull Kid causes the land’s moon to slowly fall towards Termina, where it crashes after three days. The protagonist Link repeatedly travels back in time to the beginning of the three days to find a way to stop the moon from destroying the world.
The gameplay is centered on the perpetually repeating three-day cycle and the use of various masks, some of which allow Link to transform into different beings. Link learns to play several melodies on his ocarina, which have a variety of effects, like controlling the flow of time or opening passages to four temples, which house challenges Link must overcome. Unlike Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask requires the Expansion Pak, which provides additional memory for enhanced graphics and more on-screen characters.
The gameplay of Majora’s Mask expands on that of Ocarina of Time; it retains the concept of dungeon puzzles and ocarina songs, and introduces character transformations and a three-day cycle. As in previous installments, Link can perform basic actions such as walking, running and limited jumping, and must use items to battle enemies and solve puzzles.
Link’s main weapon is the sword, which can be upgraded throughout the game. Other weapons and items are available—Link can block or reflect attacks with a shield, stun enemies by throwing Deku Nuts, attack from a distance with a bow and arrows, destroy obstacles and damage enemies with bombs. He can also latch onto objects or paralyze enemies with the Hookshot. Magic power allows attacks such as magical arrows or spin attacks, and the use of special items.
Majora’s Mask was acclaimed by critics, who praised the graphics and complex story. It is now considered to be one of the best games ever made.
Based off of figmentforms’ Zelgan comic, “A Tale of Two Rulers”, which is incredibly good thus far, I recommend you all check it out! Experimented quite a bit with this and had fun, so I’m happy with the results.
Showing off my pride XD ♡♡♡ 4 years of collecting (hoarding lol) and making, TES stuff. (I forgot the tone of minis I have and maybe some other things lol i always forget something. My cosplay, drawings and ll the stuff that is kinda realted to tes but more medieval)
Hope you enjoy :D
(This is my 2nd biggest collection, my Zelda collection is the 1st)
For some reason I felt the need to show my Princess Zelda collection off. Or just take a picture of it all.
If anything, to remind myself that 12 year old me would be jealous af of current me. So I guess I’m not doing so bad.
I think all I’m really missing is the spirit tracks Zelda and the $300-400 statue (which one day, I will get) and the Sheik statue (which I will never get my hands on).
Also featuring Sheik and Tetra, because they are Zelda. :)
My parents invited some of their friends with their kids tonight and they visited the house. When they entered my room the boy saw my Zelda collection and went completely crazy ! He’s 10 and knows SO MANY THINGS about the series. We’re talking about loz stuff (mostly MM cause it seems to be his favorite) and he’s like “Do you have all the masks ? Did you save all the fairies ? Do you have all the heart pieces ?” and I’m “Yes. Yes. Yes. […]” and his sister is so cute she’s only 6 and she keeps saying “I love the game but I’m scared of monsters” just like I used to be when I was her age x)
